    We first caught sight of Google's Android 5.1.1 update back at the start of the month, mentioned in the release of a new SDK. Then last week, 5.1.1 was showing up on some official Android dev pages, measuring Nexus family audio latency. It sure felt like a release could happen at any moment, but when? Well, today's our ...

    What's a Windows Phone fan have to do to get his hands on some flagship-level hardware? Right now, such handsets on the platform are few and far between, and while there's hope that the situation is going to get better – especially with the forthcoming release of Windows 10 – firm information on specific models is ...

    The way we access the web is changing. For a growing number of people, their usage patterns are already heavily skewed towards mobile, and for many, mobile access is the primary way they get online. Google's all too aware of this, and we've already seen the company take steps to highlight content that's optimized for ...

    It would be fantastic if devices that once supported a service were guaranteed to keep doing so for years and years to come – that if Netflix works on your TV today, or your car streams Pandora, that it will keep right on working through future server-end upgrades. Sadly, that's not necessarily the case, and given ...

    We last got our hands on the LG Watch Urbane way back in March at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, though the device has remained relatively off-the-radar since then (with the one notable exception being yesterday, when Google revealed that the wristwatch would be the first to make use of the latest ...

    Update: Meanwhile the images below have popped up on Mobile-Dad purportedly showing off the device which is expected to be even thinner than the R5's 4.8mm profile (and without the protruding camera), while maintaining a metal build. Image below. Remember the OPPO R7? It will, at one point (whenever it gets released), ...

    If curved smartphones are your thing, and the Galaxy S6 Edge is something you don't like (or can't afford), the LG G Flex 2 is something you should definitely consider. We looked at it closely, not once, but twice (international version and US Sprint variant) but the phone is making its way to AT&T soon. Friday, ...

    The iPad is easily the most popular tablet series on the market. I have an iPad mini with Retina display, and there’s a good chance you probably have an iPad too. It’s not hard to imagine why; just like the iPhone, the iPad is elegant, beautifully designed, and dead simple to use. The app ecosystem is best in class, ...

    LG is doing its best to tease the April 28 event where the G4 will be unveiled, and the manufacturer didn't mind telling us all about the screen and camera sensor inside the upcoming flagship. The leaks showed us the exterior and LG follows up on the display-centric teaser we've recently seen with an LG G4 camera ...

Then we talk about all the goods that LG will give to its customers in certain countries if you buy an LG G4. Apple then takes the stage as we see how slow the Apple Watch is to boot and launch apps. Sony follows as ...

    The big news from OnePlus today concerns how it's selling the flagship One, doing away with invites and limited-time sales windows for good. But that's not the only thing that's happening with the phone today, and OnePlus's Carl Pei announced on social media that OTA distribution of the just-released CyanongenMod 12S ...

    Your smartphone supports a lot of different radio formats, each bringing its own benefits to your handset. You've got LTE reception for mobile data, Bluetooth to talk to your accessories, and WiFi for data at home or work. But there's another radio inside many phones that can tap in to a ton of totally free news and ...

    Samsung may be the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but you'd be shocked to know how little it sells in certain countries. To give you an example, Apple owns 51.1% of the Japanese market share, and as for Samsung, 5.6%, and no we didn't get that number wrong. The company is willing to do anything to gain ...

    It’s such a small and subtle variation on the standard Galaxy S6 that Samsung didn’t even decide to capitalize its brand name. But don’t be fooled by the understatement: as we discovered on other bold devices from our recent history, it’s amazing what a little curve can do. Editor's Note: This companion ...

    There's a major shake-up happening for Android tablets right now, and after years of manufacturers preferring models that mirrored their smartphone offerings with widescreen 16:9 or 16:10 displays, there's been a recent push towards the squarer 4:3 screens long associated with Apple's iPad lineup. We've already seen 4:3 ...

    It's hard to be happy for either Microsoft or Nokia after the whole mobile division buyout. It's been almost a year since the deal happened and we still don't see a flagship Lumia from Microsoft's administration. Microsoft is still entitled to use the Nokia brand until next year as part of the deal, and if you're ...

It's already been sharing hardware pics, talking about phone components, and generally getting us excited about the G4's pending debut. Its latest ...

    Amazon's Fire tablets make for a tricky proposition. They're not quite the full-blown Android experience some shoppers expect, with the same tight integration with Google apps and services you'll find on something like a Nexus model (or even a Galaxy Tab). That said, Amazon's own Fire OS fork can still manage to hit a ...

    After spending some time in Singapore with the Oppo N3 a few months ago, I won't deny that I was really interested in taking the device for a spin. Smartphone designs have become dull lately, with predictable camera setups and the usual controls. For that reason alone, it's hard for our inner geek to not be excited ...

    With Apple Watch pre-orders upon us, and the smartwatch set to hit customer hands (well, wrists) soon, it's easy to get so wrapped-up in Apple's chapter of the wearable story that we gloss over what's happening with Android Wear. Sure, the other week's announcement about newly curated watchfaces and straps wasn't so ...

This was a major departure from previous iterations of the devices ...
